Hey guys, I am a first time builder and Poster to this forum. As the title tells you, I am looking for a 750 watt PSU with 80+ gold certification for an NZXT Phantom Full tower. I have read forums saying that Seasonic and XFX are really good PSU's but I am still unsure of what to look for in a power supply, I don't want to spend way more money than I have to, but I want something that will last me, give me clean power, and leave so wiggle room to upgrade my PC. Also money is not a factor in this.

Here are my specs:
Nzxt Phantom Full Tower

Asus P8Z77-V LK Motherboard

Intel I5 3570k slightly OC

Hyper 212 EVO

MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr 2GB

Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)

600GB WD Velociraptor

Both Seasonic and XFX are good quality power supplies and you can't go wrong with either one. I have a Seasonic in my expensive computer and have had no problems at all with it. A Seasonic PSU might be a bit more expensive but it's worth it.

Unless you get into the guts of the device, you're going to have to rely on name brand and features to narrow down which PSU to get. Seasonic may be the last name in PSUs you need to remember, especially if price is not a factor.

This is a good one that will power all your stuff:

Hi - since you don't want to spend way more than you have to, then don't get a 750w PSU unless you
intend on adding a 2nd gtx760 (and even that can run on less than 750).

I suggest a good quality 550w, which also allows for OC, etc.
